Petrol is a kind of strategic natural resources. Providing legitimate transportation plans for the petrol secondary distribution is the key links to guarantee the petrol normal sales. The aim of this paper mainly is to obtain a distribution plan to meet certain level of service considering stochastic demand circumstances. Factors including the sales volume, the initial inventory, different type vehicles and capacity limitation constraints are considered. Firstly, a mathematical model for

Then a hybrid algorithm is designed by combining the greedy algorithm and the saving algorithm. The greedy algorithm is used to find a local optimal solution, and the saving algorithm is used to adjust the solution. Finally, the hybrid algorithm is used to solve a specific cases, which verifying the feasibility of the algorithm.
